Healthy Holiday Round Up Part 1

Healthy holiday roundup…

I am sure you’ve seen gift guide after gift guide this holiday season from your favorite bloggers. I don’t know about you but the gift guides can be super helpful when buying for that tricky person in your life or getting ideas for teachers, co-workers, and friends this season of giving. 

Today I want to provide you with a healthy holiday roundup of some of my PERSONAL FAVORITE resources when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle. I am by no means sharing this as a sponsored ad; everything I am sharing I am sharing freely because I genuinely LOVE the products/programs.

As we round out an utterly stressful, tragic year, I think we can all do ourselves a favor and bless ourselves and those around us with the GIFT OF HEALTH as we enter into 2021. If you’re anything like me, this year truly revealed the importance of being grounded in a healthy lifestyle- physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Below are just a few ideas and products that I love and that I think you will too….or will love to gift to someone you love this Christmas season. 

 

Clean Beauty & Supplements:

 

Vital Proteins Collagen– I love this brand of collagen powder because it’s clean and packs in 18 grams of protein per serving. I will add it to tea or a smoothie. It’s tasteless and dissolves easily. Collagen is SO important for the health of our skin, hair, and joints. 

 

Pink Stork– This brand is incredible in how they support women and women’s health. I take their fertility support supplement as well as drink some of their teas. They have supplements/vitamins for women in every stage of life. Their products are quality and the company is female-owned and everything is produced in the USA. So many wins! Use code ‘BFF10’ to receive 10% off your order!

 

Beauty Counter Clean Makeup & Skincare– I’ve been using Beauty Counter products for YEARS now and I continue to love them and share them with others. Some of my all time favorite products include their brightening facial oil, resurfacing peel, countercountrol pore cleanser, dew skin tinted moisturizer, luminous powder highlighter, and their twin skin concealer (AMAZING). You have to check this company out if you are looking for clean beauty products that have safe, natural ingredients. 

 

See you next week when we will introduce Part 2-Healthy Programs & Fitness.

You’re Like A Firefly

You’re like a firefly.  Everywhere you go, you light up.  You shimmer and shine your goodness right where you are.  You don’t even TRY.  It’s natural.  Just like the firefly.  He didn’t wake up this morning and say “I hope I shine really really bright tonight”.  Nope.  He just IS.  

That’s you.  Your smile, your energy your beauty.  It just IS.  

I remember when I was a kid, my sister and I used to catch the fireflys in a jar.  It was cool chasing them around the yard, watching them through the glass as they would light up every few seconds and then waiting till morning to see what they would do.  The first time we caught some, that next day, we wondered what did they actually look like and would they still light up…..  and maybe they did but we just couldn’t see it because the sun was shining.  Every time we caught some, in the morning, we would release them.  They did not want to live in the jar, even though we put grass in the jar and poked holes in the lid.  They wanted to be free.  Free to fly.  Free to light up the night with their shimmer and shine.

Let us remember that we are like the firefly.  We do not let others thwart our life. We do not let others keep us in a jar with grass and breathing holes and think it’s an acceptable way to live.  

Be free.  Free to glow and grow and sparkle.  Free to shimmer and shine and express our natural beauty.   Free with our own unique firefly life.  Make a difference as you travel through the days and nights shining your beauty and brightness on every one nearby.

Beautiful You

Beautiful you…or is it Beauty Full you?  I’ll take both. Won’t you?  I am beautiful and I am beauty.  Full.  From the bottom of my feet to the top of my head.  It is there.  Thriving. Expressing. Living.

I can not will it away.  I can not wash it away.  I can not talk it away.  It is there, always has been and always will be.  Okay so it took a long time for me to understand it, embrace it and believe it.  And now it is who I am. Without question.

What about you?  Beauty is part of everyone from birth.  It resonates in our bones, our flesh, our mind.  It is part of who we are.  Whether we like it or not, it is in our DNA.

It’s what we do with it that either helps it grow or hinders it hibernate.  Just like a seed….it is going to be a plant.  When it is cared for and watered and given sunshine and protection from bad weather… it will be the plant it is meant to be.  A flower, or a tree or a vine or even a weed.  The seed will become.

And so will you.  When you are taken care of, drink plenty of water, take in healthy foods, get lots of sunshine and protected from evil… you will be the woman you were meant to be.  A teacher, or a manager or a clerk, or even a nurse.  You will become.

How amazing is that?!  To not have to wonder anymore if you are beautiful.  But to know.  Already… since day one, since breath one, heck….since the moment you were conceived you were beautiful.  You don’t have to do anything, you don’t have to act a certain way, you don’t have to dress a certain way.

You just are.  Oh BEAUTIFUL,   BEAUTY   FULL   YOU.

Your God Girl,

What’s My Age Again?

Here I am again writing about my age, getting older and it’s impact, especially on our perception of beauty. One of the very first posts I wrote was on retrospect a kind of ranty post about how I have earned the right to be who I am as I age. This all started as it does because of an insomnia fueled evening spent too long on social media. Filters, crops, edits. Likes, loves. It got me thinking. As we get older is beauty really authentic or filtered. How do you define it? What does it look like? Feel like? What does beauty and aging mean?

Knowing I had a blog post due I asked.

The irony is as I have talked to others I wasn’t too far off from my original post.

Here are the amazing words of the people in my life:

“It equates denial.”

“It’s confidence, kindness. I’ve earned every wrinkle and silver strand of hair just by living life. I feel pretty lucky to be alive.”

“Being confident in who I am and who God made me to be. Aging is great when you realize through the years that those things that make you NOT look like everyone else, are the things that make you uniquely you, and that’s where true beauty is found.”

“I think we live in a pretty awesome time to be “aging” women. When I hit 40, I felt so much more free. And as I get closer to 50, I feel my most amazing, healthy, radiant, and yes beautiful. Now it’s about ME and I finally really, truly don’t care what people think. Plus we have some awesome role models.”

Beauty as you get older is truly relative. When people say it’s all about your attitude I’m here to say I think I finally get it.

At the end of the day whatever makes you happy, brings joy to your life, gives you that spark isn’t that what it’s really all about?

I truly look forward to more adventures. Hopefully becoming a Grandma. Even if it’s of the four legged variety. Beautiful silver hair like my Great Grandmother Mary had. Less makeup or more. Finding my favorite outfit and signature perfume.

Those are the legacies my Grandmothers gave me.

Either way.

Every wrinkle

Piece of hair glitter

They are our mile markers of a life lived.

Much love Mommas,
